My Public Facebook Profile

Here's what Facebook tells the world about Adam Howard. Mostly just who/what I'm a fan of, along with a picture of me:

Try again.

Error message from an email system to remain nameless:

You have exceeded the number of allowed login attempts. Please try again.

Or to paraphrase: "You've tried too many times, but not too many enough."

UPDATE: So I tried again:

Due to multiple failed login attempts, your account access has been suspended.Or in other words: "Haha, sucker."

The California DMV website says: "The Department has the right to refuse any combination of letters and/or letters and numbers that may carry connotations offensive to good taste and decency"...I think they didn't exercise their right this time.

Evil Megabytes

If I were on the Google Gmail team, I would have tweaked the algorithm that assigns storage space to skip from 6,659 MB to 6,670 MB of storage space. I wonder how many superstitious people would avoid using Gmail if they knew it had the number of the beast in the storage space on the site?

Can you identify this face?

Hint: It's somewhere in Orange County.

Renting Beer

"You can never buy beer, you just rent it." -- Archie Bunker

You have probably heard this saying or some variation of it, right? Well I got to thinking this evening...has any bar, pub or tavern ever made a gimmick out of this? I'm thinking something to the effect of charging you a "deposit" for each beer you order, which gets returned to you after you visit the bathroom.

I can think of at least a couple variations on this: maybe your deposit isn't paid back to you, but you get credits toward a free beer. Or maybe the deposit could go towards your tip, if you prefer. Maybe the flushing mechanism for the toilet/urinal triggers a ticket to spit out of a machine (like skeeball at Chucky Cheese's).

Anyone visited a bar that does something like this? If so, let me know!

Happy Birthday Jessica!

On February 4, 1985, I was trying to write too much too fast. Twenty-three years later, I need to write a lot more than one page for school papers...

If I were in the music industry, I'd think about diversifying to other businesses too. Singing is apparently not the only way Cher is making her money these days...

Whoever compiled these lists wouldn't be happy at my progress.
